Default Looking for lifting straps

Anyone know where to get lifting straps to load the boat on and off the trailer?
Anyone know what length straps for a 44 MTI?
I've been looking on line but can't find anything.
Thank you

I don't know what length but I make lifting straps for a living. I am sure Randy can get us the length though. There should be "rigging" shops all over south Florida. It may be listed under "chain" or "lifting" or "wirerope" in the yellow pages. I can call Randy or Gary and get a length if you would like?

I've left you a couple messages over the past few months. You make a GREAT product, but I need to order another trailer winch strap for a friend, and have never heard back.

It will also be helpful to find out the lifting points on the hull, unless it has top cleats made for lifting it? I have seen the boat but never really paid attention

If you want to check that will be great. I want a set to use with a crane and i was thinking bout a second set that would have loops on the top end to go around the forklift fork. Is that possible? It does have lift hooks on the deck and next to the hatches.

If I remember correctly, the slings we had for our race boats were made by a company called Miami Cordage. I did a web search for that name and found this web site.

Gino,
Call Certex south of the airport off of Stirling Rd. 954-961-5533. They'll get you taken care of over there. We have had them made for our Jaguar raceboat by them and they take care of all of our crane company needs.

Gino, this sounds like in may be the ticket. Certex is a good company, and they are local. They probably make the straps inhouse as do we, but at least you can see theirs and change them accordingly. If its like anything else boating related, it may be cheaper if you don't tell them they are boating related.
